Private Paediatrician Hull

Dr Vishal Mehta

I specialise in paediatric neurology and neurodisability. I deal with all kinds of neurological problems in children, particularly problems of headache, funny turns, epilepsy, Tic disorder and Tourette’s, cerebral palsy, movement disorder, developmental delay and neuromuscular disorders. In addition I have experience in managing general paediatric problems.


I am a consultant pediatrician with expertise in neurological disorders in children. I have more than 23 years of experience in the field and I look after children with a wide variety of general paediatric problems and illnesses. I worked and trained across England at some of the busiest hospitals in the country (London, Manchester, Leeds, Norwich, and Hull). I am also the current clinical lead for the pediatric medicine department at the Hull University teaching hospital. Parents can book private appointments at the Spire Hospital, Hull. My NHS base is at the Hull Royal Infirmary. I provide both face-to-face and e-consultation through the zoom or telephone. I accept referral from GP, therapist, consultant colleagues, and parents (supported by a GP letter)

My qualifications are MBBS, DCH, MD pediatrics, FRCPCH, and PG Diploma in Child Health. I am also a fellow at the Royal College of Pediatricians. I obtained my primary qualification in India, completed a post-graduation degree in paediatrics from the prestigious University of Bombay (Mumbai), and obtained an MD degree.

I have a keen interest in teaching. I regularly teach the Yorkshire Deanery MRCPCH clinical course, British Pediatric Neurology Association run headaches (CHaT), and epilepsy courses (PET). Additionally, I am an honorary lecture in paediatrics for Hull York Medical School (HYMS), MRCPCH examiner elect, and Resuscitation Council EPALS course instructor.


My outside work interests include cycling, running, and trekking. I aim to provide the best quality of care with a holistic approach, keeping the child and family in the center.
